Web based tools are a great means to have students engage with content. These tools fall into two categories: formative assessment activities and presentation tools. Sometimes these categories overlap and you will find a web-based tool on both lists.
Web based activities may be embedded or linked in your Moodle course. As well, consider using these activities in online synchronous environments (BB Ultra) or in face to face (F2F) environments.
Formative assessment: It is important for faculty and students to know how well students are grasping concepts and skills taught. For faculty, when these activities are delivered in synchronous environments, you get a collective view of the class performance. For students, formative activities allow one to reflect on their class work. Mid-term marks should not be a surprise for faculty or students.
Presentation tools: Providing students with novel approaches to delivering content is important for the student experience. If you use PPT consistently, consider using a different presentation tool occasionally.
